In 1945, fifty strangers, all survivors of the holocaust bonded together seeking revenge for what they knew to be justified, their plan was to kill six million Germans. They called themselves the Nakam. Their first two attempts failed.
During the war, Ludwig Klimek did what he could. He helped those that no one would help. He escaped his captors without ever knowing who was hunting him. He created a plan that he knew he would not live to see executed. He was an immigrant that created the secret code to finally get the justice that six million people needed and a remaining few wanted.
In 2021, fifty strangers with mysterious tattoos are brought together to decipher the code they had no idea they were a part of for the last seventy-five years. It would not fail this time.
Ludwig is a survivor. Born poor, he thrived in the polish ghetto before the war, and quietly led the rebels within during the war. He was captured, escaped with a child of a Nazi that loved him and he decided he would do something. He also knew he'd never live to see it get done, but he knew he could trust those that had trusted him.
Not a native New Yorker, far from it. He was born in Umm El Fahm, the largest muslim city in Israel that no one heard of. He came to the United States as a baby, immigrating with his well educated now deceased parents. He was blamed for 9/11 for the color of his skin and name few could pronounce. He started to document what he saw. He never quit.
Otto escaped as his faithful Nazi friends were captured by the altruistic Americans soldiers. He wanted to fight, but knew his plan was in the future. He changed his name, fixed his German accent, burned his past and arrived like so many others on the shores of America, with a scared look of hope in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. Only he knew he was faking it.
Henry had seen more than he wanted to and more than he asked. The American's were impatient, his boss, the British MI6 were smart, but naive. He went into Germany not knowing what he'd find. He was an expert at cryptology. What he found was that the Allies almost lost the war. Then he saw what other didn't, a plan for the future by those that shouldn't have survived.
